Serving The Community
St Edward's College is a Christian Community, built on the values of the founder of the Congregation of Christian Brothers, Blessed Edmund Rice. These values can be summarised as, sharing the love of God, justice, concern for the poor and disadvantaged and empowerment through education.
The College itself was founded in 1853 by Father James Nugent, initially as the Catholic Institute in Liverpool and became St Edward's College in 1920. Father Nugent himself was a man of immense compassion who worked tirelessly throughout his life to care for the poor and less fortunate. The values of the College Community, Commitment, Caring and Striving for Success are embedded in the principles of these two men.
The spirit of Edmund Rice and James Nugent is borne out by the large numbers of pupils and staff who engage in community and charity work. The information in this section of the website gives just a snapshot of the huge amount of work undertaken by pupils and staff during the school year, please visit the news section to read about the many other caring acts that take place.
Sports facilities have been used on a regular basis by a number of local clubs, including Everton Swimming Association and St Edward's Old Boys Rugby Club. The College also provides the College Hall as a venue for the Liverpool Mozart Orchestra to rehearse and perform.
